I am looking for a reputable source of T3 and I live in the US. I am hypothyroid (have been for about 20 years with the same endocrinologist) and have been looking on sites online but I am skeptical about spending what little money I have with someone I know nothing about. I am on Synthroid 137 mcg and my latest test scores are as follows:
TSH: 0.46 (range 0.40-4.50 mlU/L)
T4, Free: 1.4 (range 0.8-1.8 ng/dl)
T3, Free: 2.8 (range 2.3-4.2 pg/mL)
Thyroglobulin Antibodies: <1 (range < or =1 IU/mL)
Thyroid Periodase Antibodies: <1 (range <9 IU/mL)
Per the coordinator on this site, my body is not converting the T4 into T3. This is why I am still suffering with anxiety, depression, severe dry skin and a host of other problems. I have looked on Amazon and a few other internet sites and I am really afraid to just order from an unknown vendor as I do not know if what I am getting will be what I need or is the real thing. I really need T3 and my doctor has NEVER and will not prescribe. I had to recently reschedule my doctor appointment due to recent financial problems and cannot see my doctor again until March. I am also trying to find another endo in my area who will prescribe T3. Unfortunately, my insurance will no longer pay for T3 so it will be out of pocket no matter the source. I am really desperate for some help. Thank you.
